> I don't know. Does anybody know of a family like that? I'll think about it. Right now the happiest family I know of, personally, deals with things on a moment-to-moment basis. Not completely happy 20-40% of the time, it's okay. Pretty good, five percent of that time, maybe even has high as twenty. So what's that work out to, out of a hundred possible, well, a hundred really ISN'T possible, unless you're a completely grateful and well-traveled person. Well-traveled, I think that's the key. Really and truly, you have to get out of yourself to be happy, so I don't know, I guess I equate animosity with unhappiness. Hmh. How much animosity is in your family?
I don't think a 100% happy famliy exists. Its seems the more you get to know someone the more skeletons appear but I think getting out of yourself is really important, and yup travel too. I guess it has to do with experience, the more you experience the more you understand? But no...not for everyone though. Less animosity does = more happiness. Maybe the happier you are the happier everyone can be. Do happy people make people happy or p*ss people off?
When I have a family everyone is going to be happy and everyone is going to love eveyone unconditionally and we will have no fights and no worries about where to spend holidays and everyone will like apple pie :)
